He was formerly from Cleveland and moved to the Gulf Coast in 1979 after serving three tours in Vietnam, in the U.S. Navy.
He was currently employed at the Seabee base as an environmental specialist.
He was preceded in death by his son, Daysja Ingram; parents, Ruth Carroll Ingram and D.A. Ingram; sister, Lyndia Grady; and his older brother, Terry Ingram.
He had a great sense of humor, which endeared him to his family and friends. He loved his family and all of his critters dearly. He was an avid fan of the University of Tennessee Volunteers and the Atlanta Braves. He was the “rock” of the Ingram family and no words can describe our sense of loss at this time.
He leaves behind his wife, Jan Reynolds Ingram; sons: Om Ingram and his wife, Michelle, and Alex Ingram and his wife, Kim; very precious granddaughter, Camille Daysja Ingram, his “little treasure”; brothers: Rodger, David, and Perry Ingram; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
The Remembrance of Life graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011, at Sunset Memorial Gardens with Larry Swafford, Reggie Swafford, Steve Jackson, Neil Ingram, Stan Ingram, and Drew Ingram serving as pallbearers.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at North Ocoee Chapel of Jim Rush Funeral Homes, which has charge of local arrangements.
